    Never mind! I posted this before showing it to Herself. At that point nothing would do but that we make a run to Madison to pick it up

    Yep, we got it! It was prettier in person than in the pictures. Herself is doing a write up. That was the only sewing machine he had for sale.

    *jealous* I like the red eye design, but it isn't my favorite of the singer styles...and its also one I don't happen to have in my collection.

    Introducing Claudette...the newest addition to our herd

    Wouldn't ya know it! DH posts about a gorgeous Red Eye that's a steal and doesn't even show me first! I took one look at that and knew we had to go get it. Afterall, he has Colette, a beautiful Red Eye treadle. Shouldn't I have a Red Eye too? And I lean more towards the electric machines, so it was a match waiting to happen! Now, her wiring is all crap, but DH can fix that. Her cabinet isn't the greatest, but we can refinish it - maybe lighten it up. I still can't believe the guy sold it to us for $19. Isn't she absolutely stunning?

    So far I've found two small chips in the japanning and a small amount of wear in the front decals (little spots.) There was some sticky residue in a couple of places but that came off fine. There's also some dried tape residue - masking or surgical or similar - that hasn't responded well to my early attempts at cleaning but I'll continue to work on it.
